CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the hottest new products in the US market, as confirmed by The Georgia Hemp Company. The owners admit that their CBD balms are of high demand. Thanks to the non-psychoactive properties of cannabidiol, it’s legally used in food, drinks, cosmetics, and even pet treats as an active pain-relieving component.
One of the use cases is topical CBD against pain. According to Dr. Taz Bhatia of Atlanta’s CentreSpring MD, it has proven to relieve joint pain:
You can’t use it topically and expect overall pain to go away, but it helps where you put it locallyDr. Taz Bhatia
Dr. Bhatia warned that finding quality CBD products can be challenging due to the absence of proper regulations. She recommends buying from companies that can provide certificates that confirm that a third-party lab has tested their products. Finally, you should look for brands that have informative labels with specific information about the product contents.
